It is a mausoleum that has an hexagonal plan and a conic spire roof. There is an underground invisible level serving as an ipogeoum tomb. The hole in the wall was used as main entrance, hence that door was preceded by a staircase which is now lost. The mausolea were built for housing mortal remains for deceased leaders or other persons of importance.
Church of the Holy Mary of “Libera Nos a Scandalis”
Foto Quarto: Church of the Holy Mary of “Libera Nos a Scandalis”
This modern building was remodeled and rebuilt several times over centuries. Actually the first chapel was erected in 1243. The interiors still house some applied and decorative artworks of earlier ages. The modern facade is simple and sober; the bell tower is reminiscent of Italian Rational Architecture.
